General Information

The lessons take place in mixed nationality groups at our school in Dublin, with no more than 14 students per class*. Our DELTA-trained teachers focus on providing participants with practical ready-to-use ideas and skills. In addition, there is always a space for participants to voice their own ideas and exchange practices with classmates. We also place a great emphasis on participants digging deeper into Irish culture, via safe discussion in our lessons and activities and excursions outside the classroom. Courses last for either 1 or 2 weeks and various accommodation options are available on request for participants throughout their stay.

*Group bookings in closed groups for a minimum of 7 people are available on request all-year-round outside of usual course dates, and such groups can tailor-make the course to satisfy the specific needs of the group.
